COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Columbus nonprofit ministry is offering condolences to a Georgia Assistant Attorney General who's husband was shot and killed in Atlanta this week.

Georgia Assistant Attorney General Camila Wright, now mourning the loss of her husband, was just in Columbus in April for a panel discussion.

The Set Free Columbus movement, a ministry to fight sex trafficking hosted the panel at the Columbus Library about commercial sexual exploitation of children.
    
Camila Wright, also human trafficking prosecutor, was the lead speaker for the training.
    
Now, she has a new fight on her hands. This past Wednesday, Wright's husband was found shot to death in a car in Northeast Atlanta.
    
He was working as Lyft driver and was waiting at a red light.
    
Set Free Columbus is offering their support to Wright and her family.

"The Set Free Movement is brokenhearted for her and her family. We wish we knew a way to help her. I don't know if words can do anything to help but I know that prayer can," said Bobbi Starr, Team Lead for Set Free Columbus.

"My first impression and my last impression of Mrs. Wright is that she is an absolutely warrior and a hero for victims of trafficking and I admire her," said Starr.

No arrests have been made in the murder case. The couple had a young daughter together.

A $10,000 reward - including $5,000 by Georgia Governor. Nathan Deal - is being offered to help find the person responsible for the deadly shooting.
